Rockit 8 Bit Synth Kit

I just stumbled upon this cute little monster, the 8 Bit Rockit Synth… and, as I know how much work it is to just solder an existing kit or project, I pledge deep respect for someone who is willing to invent a new synth without having a company or sth. similar behind him. Matt Heinze just did this, and it actually sounds like fun!! There might still be some additional work to do, but I do really like the idea of starting his own company with this project just from scratch.

so check out the Rockit 8 Bit synth, there might be more to come soon…?!

More info about his project can be found here:

DIY Project: the NXT-606 LEGO Drummachine

Just found this on de:bug: a fun little DIY project from Peter Cocteau, built with LEGO, the great colored plastic toy for children… as I loved LEGO when I was a kid (especially technic-LEGO) I really digg this great invention… maybe I will build this in the near future?!?

Have a look:

DIY: Midibox Sequencer V4

Just a small update on my recent DIY activities: the Midibox Sequencer V4 is almost finished. the frontpanel was done by julian, a really talented guy from england (thanks a lot for this great work!), the frontpanle PCB is the Wilba version, that has a real great interaction concept, and all the parts are from smashtv, and the whole Seq V4 concept can be found here: Seq V4, here Wilbas frontpanel and here: www.ucapps.de
It contains 3 Midi out, USB out, 8 CV/Gate out, 2 GB of SD Card memory besides all the great features of the Seq V4! A real fun toy to play with, so I will hopefully finish the desktop case soon so I can use it in my studio. Stay tuned for more detailed pictures!
